Simple question: Is there any markdown editor for iOS which supports inline Latex commands (and preview)?


The short answer is "no", I've been looking myself.

TexWriter is a decent LaTex editor and preview but I don't know of a MarkDown one with inline LaTex.

Further, you might want to check out Brett Terpstra's page devoted to iOS editors for a great list of editors and keep an eye out for any that add "LaTex" as an extra feature.


Dropbox paper works on iPads. Typing in $$ will start an inline latex environment.


MWeb on iOS and macOS supports inline LaTeX Markdown extension. Inline LaTeX is rendered in the markdown preview.

Markdown Assist: Useful Table insert and LaTeX writing aids.

Markdown syntax: Supports Table, TOC, LaTeX, Fenced code block, Task lists, Footnote, etc.


Atom plus the Pandoc package appears to give you a large swath of the functionality of Latex and Markdown.

To get all of that working, you'll need to have Pandoc and Mac Latex installed already. When I have enough rep points to post more links, I'll provide references for these too!
